Fighting gun violence in Chicago

Tio Hardiman, director of CeaseFire Illinois, says part of the solution to reducing crime in Chicago begins with understanding that violence is model behavior and a matter of public health.

He's supportive of the remarks President Obama made while visiting his town, which addressed the problems with crime there and throughout the country.

Hardiman's focus isn't on challenging gun laws, but on showing young people that they have a choice about their path in life.

"We have a Sandy Hook incident in Chicago every 30 days," he told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "We have to change the way people think. We have generations of people that grew up in this culture of violence in Chicago."
